Sorry to post about another winter ride, but people who don't ride aren't interested. Anyone care to join me? I will be riding every Thursday weather permitting. The snow makes it e\very bright at night.

-3f!!? That's about -19C and rather cold, in my (or at least my bike's) opinion. Does your bike run well when it's that cold? I've noticed, that when it's about -12C (10F) or colder, my bike begins to run lean. Doesn't pull well and blasts in the pipe, particularly when decelerating. Luckily it has been a rather balmy winter, mostly between 0 and -10C.

You are more than welcome to come freeze your ass off and do a winter ride with us. We just got 6" of fresh snow and today it is supposed 39degF , then drop below freezing for wed and thurs. This usualy creates ideal conditions. I am still waiting to ride some dirt. The WR hasen't seen dirt yet.

I don't mind -3F. I'm in CT.
I would like to do some snow rides but I won't have the bike until March. I do still have my XR400 but I am trying to sell it.

I live in NH and the riding is great. The snoe reflects the light quite well. I have no problem with the stock headlight in the snow. If the snowmobile trails are legal for wheeled vehicles, I would stud up the XR and go for a spin. What part of CT are you from?

We don't have good snowmobile trails (or snow) like NH.
